IRA/HSA Contribution Extensions

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Senate passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which extends the tax filing deadline until July 15, 2020. Part of this extension also changes the contribution dates for Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) and Health Savings Accounts (HSAs).

July 15, 2020 is the new cut-off date for 2019 IRA and HSA contributions. Remember, from January to July, identify which tax year you want your contribution to be put toward.

Economic Impact Payment (Stimulus Money)

We are experiencing a higher than normal call volume due to questions regarding government stimulus deposits; therefore, please expect longer wait times.

The IRS created the “Get My Payment” service at IRS.gov. This online tool allows you to check your payment status (including the date your money is scheduled to be deposited or mailed), confirm whether you prefer direct deposit or paper check, and enter your account information for direct deposit if the IRS doesn’t have it. NOTE: If your payment has already been scheduled to mail, you cannot use the online tool.

To see if you have received your stimulus money or to monitor your transactions, please use our free Online Banking and mobile app services, 24/7. If you need to register, click here.
